Dessert shop opens second location with flagship Arndale letting

Home grown dessert shop, Lazy Sundae, has opened a second location, this time in Manchester Arndale.

Its new flagship site in the city comprises a 1,305 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease.

The home-grown ice cream parlour opened its first outlet in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and has since gone from strength to strength.

Showcasing an internationally-inspired menu of premium bubble tea, souffle pancakes and artisan ice creams, guests can taste the flavours of the tropics, from Bali and Thailand to Malaysia and Taiwan.

Scott Linard, portfolio director at M&G Real Estate, said: “We place great importance in having a truly mixed offer and its fantastic to be able to support local brands as they expand.

“With such exciting leasing activity taking place, including recent retail lettings to MINISO, Gilly Hicks and Clarks, it’s clear operators across the board have long term confidence in the centre.

“As we move into the new year, we hope to continue this bumper run, cementing Manchester Arndale as a dynamic and vibrant retail destination with a varied line up of exciting retail, F&B and leisure.”

A spokesperson for Lazy Sundae said: “We are very excited to be joining Manchester Arndale.

“The site will form the flagship store for Lazy Sundae as part of our nationwide expansion plans. Customers will be transported to far corners of the world through our travel-inspired offerings.”

Metis Real Estate and Time Retail Partners are Manchester Arndale’s retained letting agents.
